Scientists create cheat for popular word game that shows all the answers
November 30, 2011 in Entertainment
[prMac.com] Denham Springs, Louisiana - The "Board Solver for Words With Friends" app, released by SKH apps last week has a very unique ability. It can read a game board, quickly create very large words out of any combination of letters and then show the user where to place them on the board. It took a small team of computer scientist to combine optical character recognition, word generation technology and a puzzle solving algorithm to create this word game solving app.
This app opens to a simple interface with a blank board and a few buttons. The user presses import and chooses a screenshot of their word game. Within seconds the word game is redrawn on the screen and a word is shown in bright yellow. The word shown is the best possible word, placed in the best position to get the highest points in that turn. At this point the user can press the next arrow to cycle through more words, define the current word, or go back to their word game and play the word shown.
One of the scientist on the team must have had a good sense of humor, because the app also contains a comical twist. Each time a word is shown, a funny phrase is posted along with it. Users will see phrases like: "You will be remembered as a genius.", "They are probably cheating too!" and "We understand. You needed a little help." while searching for the best words.
